Weather at the Beach

We have a saying out on the coast: "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes". I have some great photos from 2 weeks ago with the kids out on the beach in t-shirts, and evidence of patches of snow from an earlier snowfall that depicts this well.

The weather was particluarly playful this past weekend, with 70 degrees and sunshine on Saturday, and then 50's and drizzly on Sunday. Mother nature giveth and then Mother Nature taketh away.

In any case, Spring has sprung, the days are longer, and the path is full of families on bikes and on foot experiencing the splendor. It's nice to get a deep breath of ocean air and look forward to the summer ahead!
